5-3. Have the Springboks peaked too early in this match?

It must be quite demoralising knowing you are going to have to face this madness for a full 80 minutes

We have 6 forwards on the bench.

Because the mitigating factors ar the angle and where they land. This is basic stuff
Another ref, another game, and that would have been a red.

Despite the last knock on, SA 12 has been by far SA's best player so far.

Great hit from matsushima. A lot stronger than he looks.

You can see why SA won the RC, they're a very canny side.

Boks seem content in just hammering and grinding the Japanse into the ground.

I don’t mind it.

Boks just need to hold onto the ball better and maybe keep it in hand a bit more.

It's basically the same as the ABs, but riskier!
As an Irish supporter I would love if we just went balls out and tried to play like them
A lot of it comes back to basic skills but performed at a blistering pace

The passing and handling is fantastic.

They put a lot of teams to shame.

South Africa offside constantly.
They're deliberately slowing the game down because they know they're knackered already.

Maybe Angus Gardner or Peyper

The Japanese passing feels a bit suicidal, an intercept is waiting round the corner, but it's beautiful whilst it's working.

Japan are great to watch but they have been getting away with constant forward passes all tournament.
